Though the Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office partners annually with CrimeStoppers, 9News and the Shred-it Inc. document shredding company to help prevent identity theft by holding an annual Shred-a-thon every year in May at our headquarters, this year’s event has been CANCELED due to Covid-19.

The Shred-a-thon is a fundraiser for the Denver metro area CrimeStoppers chapter. Voluntary donations for CrimeStoppers will be accepted at each site. The non-profit CrimeStoppers chapter supports local law enforcement agencies by offering anonymous cash rewards to individuals who can help solve crime. Documents will be shredded on-site, with officers present.
